Notes:

This cassette was issued to make available a long deleted album. This is a tape recording of Obsolete from vinyl, identical (also graphic wise) to original release. As this record has been released on CD, this cassette is issential only to completists.

The cover has pink inlay card, black lettering and a b&w rectangle stuck on front with part of "Obsolete" artwork.

No release date appearing on cover (most probably released in the early 90's).
There was a previous cassette reissue on Ottersongs with some bonus tracks (not related to these sessions).
